Some reasons to buy the Kindle:

1. The Specialist e-ink technology mean it’s like reading a book, and much more comfortable on the eye than a computer screen or a tablet.

2.  Free web worldwide.  –  Yes it’s true – if you buy a 3G Kindle you get free internet access (via mobile networks) across most of Europe and some of the world . (About 100 countries). So – you can  download books or newspapers at no additional cost, even without wi-fi connection.  There is also  a web browser (look under  “experimental” option in the menu )  . It’s black and white, and pretty basic –  but for scanning text  and checking  web-mail like Gmail it’s fine and at  no cost. For anyone who travels abroad regularly this is a great little feature – and will cut out the need to use those mobile data roaming on your mobile phone.

3. You can download books directly. The beauty of the Kindle is, due to the wi-fi or 3G, you don’t have to connect to your computer to download books – get them straight to the Kindle.

4. Long battery life. It has a long battery life, though if you’re not downloading books or using the web, turn wi-fi off to conserve juice.
